About Hetephernebti . .

Hetephernebti was a queen of the third dynasty of ancient Egypt. She was the only known wife of Pharaoh Djoser.[1]

Hetephernebti and a King's Daughter Inetkaes were named on stelae found around Djoser's Sakkara pyramid complex and on a Heliopolis relief showing Djoser accompanied by the two of them.[2]

Among her titles were “one who sees Horus” (m33.t-ḥrw-) and “great of sceptre” (wr.t-ht=s), both common for important queens in this period, also, she was called “King's Daughter”, which means she was possibly a daughter of Djoser's predecessor Khasekhemwy, thus a sister or half-sister of her husband.
